Manny Pacquiao's taciturn Canadian agent Michael Koncz just spilled the beans.

Koncz admitted to me Monday afternoon that this Pacman Training Camp, which got off to a solid start in Baguio City and is now meshing well in Los Angeles, has been markedly different than all the big fight camps which came before.

What's missing then as Pacquiao, 32, winds down his preparations for his May 7 Las Vegas title defense against smooth and experienced operator Sugar Shane Mosley?

Peace, man, peace as in inner peace.

According to Koncz, there has not been a single incident of internal squabbling, backbiting or any other form of dissension within what the agent called "the Inner Circle.

"I wasn't going to talk about this," Koncz said. "This has been the most organized and least distracting camp we have ever had. Before, when we were in Baguio, Manny made four trips down to Manila. This time he limited it to one Manila excusion.

"Among the Inner Circle, everything has been good. No arguments, no disputes, no nothing. I was just thinking about it. It's kind of a strange feeling for a Pacquiao Camp."

Boxing guru Coach Freddie Roach left Pacman to fly to Manchester, England, where's he got to work the corner for his second most important pupil, world champion Amir Khan as he defends against plucky Irishman Paul McCloskey Saturday night.

(If you want some proof that Khan can do strong box-office in the UK, I hear that 15,000 tickets are gone even though the event goes on the night following a huge FA Cup match between intracity rivals Manchester United and Manchester City at London's Wembley Stadium. The big footy game starts at 5:15 p.m. and will be done in time for the Khan card to get rolling.)

I asked Koncz if Roach's week-long absence will be any kind of hindrance.

"Manny doesn't have any problem with it," Koncz said. "I think Freddie gets back sometime Sunday so it's not any big deal."

I asked if attention might be paid to the other title bout HBO will screen (McCloskey-Khan will be taped) the same night from Connecticut, welterweight champion Andre Berto against Vicious Victor Ortiz from the MGM Grand at Foxwoods.

"I don't think so we don't plan ahead like that," Koncz said. "Look, Mosley is the most experienced guy, with the deepest amateur and pro background that Manny has ever fought. We might be looking at a November rematch if it goes 12 rounds and Mosley fights as strong and as hard as we expect. Manny is preparing for the best possible Mosley, he is not undestimating Mosley at all.

"If Mosley fights like that, then we might have a possible rematch. Mosley is the most intelligent fighter that Manny has ever faced."

Ridiculous...........

comment by Las Vegas,, on 04-12-2011
Wow this shocked me! When Arum said "We're looking into a fight with Berto, Marquez, and maybe Cotto" I knew at that moment it'd be a rematch with Cotto, but no, instead it's a rematch with Mosley! We all know Pac won't knock out Mosley. Yippie! Mosley rematch in November, then Cotto in March, an...
